I am going to need more of you guys to watch this show! The MAFS Australia recaps are very time consuming because every week it is two back to back episodes. But the episodes are GREAT and you guys are missing it! Last week’s episodes were the honeymoon trips and we got a great geography lesson about Australia. We also went to Figi and New Zealand and maybe even Singapore (?). So you guys should totally get caught up and get with the program! You are missing out! If you like the 90 Day shows, you’ll love this show! I really appreciate those of you watching this with me! And the new American season of MAFS starts July 15th!
Lots of Fakery At The Dinner Party
We begin tonight with all of the couples returning to Sidney after spending a week on their honeymoon. All the couples will get together for a dinner party. Currently, we stand at ten couples so that’s a lot to cover in one dinner. Josh and Cathy are the first couple to arrive. They seem to be doing great. Then the other couples start pouring in. Then Dave comes in without Hayley! I have to go back and reread this post because I have already forgotten about this couple. Here is what did them in, “David says Hayley made derogatory comments about his hourly wage. Hayley is kind of a bitch. And David is the hot truck driver with a farm! She’s not good enough for him.” David very gallantly refuses to say why he didn’t arrive with Hayley. He says she should be there for that discussion. David does not want to be there.
The lesbians come in all smiles and holding hands? WTF? But then they quickly separate as Tash runs off to talk to the others. Tash has met the other women, but Amanda didn’t get to go to either pre-wedding party. So Tash abandoning Amanda was rude. But not as rude as Hayley trashing David in her car ride over alone. She says David has a bigger vagina than she does. Hayley is trash and David is a gentleman. Hayley starts giving a very biased version of events. She says she was joking about David’s money. She was not. Hayley is a disgusting human.
Vegans Are Annoying, Dreadful People
Everyone survives the overwhelming social activity and sits down for dinner. Dinners on reality shows are usually giant shitshows. We shall see if it is the same down under. Tash is again a bitch at dinner. Amanda is trying to help her find things she can eat. Like sweet potatoes. Tash snaps back, “How to I know that is vegan! Don’t serve me anything that is not vegan!” God I hate her. Hayley sits next to David and basically acts like everything is perfect. Then she talks to Steve and pretends like she want to stay
on the show married. Steve then goes to talk to David. David tells Steve why he is out. Steve urges him to give things a little more time.
Poor Amanda is totally isolated. The other ladies don’t know Amanda. Tash goes around from female to female being extremely flirtatious. Tash is literally sitting on everyone’s laps and being way more intimate with them than she was with Amanda. Connie has really come out of her shell. It’s probably the wine. Micheal seems head over heels for Stacey. Why? She’s not good enough for him. Hayley tells Amanda (finally someone talks to her) that David is everything she wanted on paper. Amanda says when women get the nice guy that ticks off all their boxes, they are usually turned off. Hayley can’t handle the truth.
Hayley Needs Serious Counseling
After Hayley’s talk with Amanda, she asks David to speak with her privately. I hate Hayley almost as much as I hate Mishel. Hayley is uncomfortably physically aggressive with a mortified David. That’s her problem she doesn’t know how to read the room. She is unable to see David’s position or how much she hurt his ego. Hayley is unable to see his discomfort with her random unpleasant physical aggression. She doesn’t seem to be able to understand other people’s perspectives. Even when talking to Amanda she tried to physically cover Amanda’s mouth. She has no boundaries. Dear God! Every time he tries to get away from her she throws him back down on the couch. Oh! There is a commitment ceremony the next night. Hayley just doesn’t want to lose the paycheck.
Poppy and Luke barely interact at all. Can I have Luke? Ivan is on his best behavior. Yet Hayley still cusses him out and treats him like a peon. Somehow Aleks is pissed at Ivan for being attacked by Hayley. WTF? I love how Steve is presiding over this dinner. Apparently, on the Aussie version, the couples have a re commitment ceremony every week. Oh and it is not the next night. It’s TONIGHT! Just minutes after the dinner party.
The First Commitment Ceremony
They couples are divided by gender and sent to separate quarters to deliberate. Basically, their peers will weigh in with advice. Hayley of course has a breakdown. Oh, maybe it is the next day. I dunno. It doesn’t really matter. Hayley is making it all about Hayley and how she as been judged and has to defend her character. Girl, we’re judging you over here in the US too and you don’t HAVE and character whatsoever. And you are judged because you don’t know how to interact with people. You sexually assaulted on man at the dinner party and verbally assaulted another. I think David has been convinced to hang in another week. Run, David, Run!
Cathy and Josh go first. They are happy as clams and totally in to stay. Then it is Amanda and Tash. Tash seems to think it is fine that she hurt Amanda. Because, “she was just being honest.”Tash is rolling her eyes and acting like a child. Shockingly these two choose to give it another week. Why? Mutual agreement for more air time? Tash could not care less about Amanda. Next up is Michael and Stacey. These two seem almost as happy together as Cathy and Josh. But they had a lot of issues on the honeymoon.
More Commitment Ceremonies
Connie and Jonethen both decide to stay. Up next, Chris and Vanessa make their decisions. I don’t remember anything about them. But they have decided to stay so maybe they will be more memorable next week. Natasha and Mikey also choose to stay. Much to my chagrin, Steve agrees to stick it out a bit longer with Mishel. Poppy and Luke are up next. Luke says that things were great at the wedding but Poppy just shut down after the wedding. But they both chose to stay. There are only two couples left and I presume they both leave, because I still have bios on two more couples.
Ivan and Aleks are called up next. I would be shocked if these two split. Ivan seems deeply in love already. But, Aleks is rather cold, so she could do just about anything. They both still seem happy at this point. So clearly, they are going to stay. But first Aleks says she doesn’t want to have to mother Ivan. Aleks says Ivan treats her very well but can be rude to other people. Ivan promises to be a good boy. Oh wait, Aleks says she actually had to think long and hard about her decision. But she decided to stay.
Hayley and David Make A Serious Decision
Of course the last couple is Hayley and David. David brings up Hayley’s smoking. She says she bought her first pack in over a year on the honeymoon because things were so stressful. Then he brings up her mocking his income. This time she doesn’t even try to pretend she was joking like she did at the dinner party. Instead she says, “I’m pretty honest and I’ve go no filter.” WOW. Oh now, she is back to saying it was a joke. If your joke really hurt someone that you just married, perhaps you could apologize instead of doubling down on it. David tells her to stop cutting him off. He is tired of not speaking his truth. Everyone else is surprised that David is finally standing up for himself.
One of the experts tries to mediate and Hayley keeps interrupting him as well. She doesn’t listen when anyone speaks. David says Hayley is rude and inconsiderate. He says he can look through her past with drugs. By the way the rest of the couples probably had no idea about her drug addiction. Then he finally goes for the jugular. He says, “Here I am with a recovering drug addict, and a smoker.” Hayley cries and says she is such a good egg. Then she has a dramatic breakdown. They are going to try to corner David into staying with her. That is wrong. I actually forgot she was the one with the drug addiction. She’s just a horrible person. Hayley eventually apologizes to David. Then she makes it all about her again. Steve convinced David to stay. Noeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Next week, the couples move in together. I AM TELL YOU GUYS, YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS! It’s on Lifetime and there is still time to catch up!
